The White House is reportedly pushing for Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to come to President Trump’s golf course in Doonbeg, Ireland, for a meeting when the president visits the area next month.
An Irish government source with knowledge of ongoing discussions told CNN that the Trump administration is insisting on picking the location of the meeting.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Irish government feel that protocol dictates that any event they host for President Trump should be at a venue of their choosing and certainly not at an hotel owned by Trump,” the source told CNN.
“It is a bit unseemly to demand that the taoiseach host President Trump at his hotel,” the source added, referring to the Irish prime minister.
Trump is expected to travel to Ireland for two nights during his June visit to Great Britain and France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the World War II battle at Normandy. Irish officials have reportedly offered a compromise — Varadkar will host Trump for dinner at nearby Dromoland Castle and then come to Trump’s Doonbeg hotel for breakfast.
